Cleaning Up After a Fire Loss in Louisville 

There are many potential concerns after a fire gets extinguished, as some of the most hazardous effects continue to circulate. Our experienced professionals arrive with a broad inventory of potent cleaning products, solvents, and detergents to address soot and smoke residues on structural materials and contents. Some of the standard practices we implement to remove soot concerns from surfaces include: 

  • Abrasive cleaning (media blasting)
  • Agitative cleaning (dry vacuuming, brushing)
  • Wipe cleaning 
  • Controlled demolition

Removing Harsh Odors Fires Can Leave Behind in Louisville Homes

Cleaning up exposed surfaces and contents is only part of the equation for restoring a home’s interior. Beyond the natural spread of smoke and burning odors through open areas of the property, pathways like the HVAC system can also allow a greater distribution of these palpable effects. There are many effective deodorization solutions to neutralize smoke odors, such as thermal foggers and hydroxyl generators.
